Ch. K-Run's Park Me In First, also known as Uno (May 5, 2005 – September 20, 2018) was a 15 inches (380 mm) beagle. He was born in Belleville, Illinois. Uno won Best in Show in the 2008 Westminster Kennel Club dog show. He was the first beagle to claim the top prize at Westminster and the first beagle to win the hound group since 1939.[1]

Uno and his owner were invited to the White House to meet President George W. Bush.[2] While there, he was given a collar by First Lady Laura Bush. Uno was the first Westminster champion to be invited to celebrate victory with the President.[2]

Uno died of cancer on September 20, 2018 in Austin, Texas at the age of 13.[3]
